When I think about other people and their lives I can imagine two things:
They are living really happy life, without serious issues. Or they are living bad life, filled with poor decisions. Also there are people who have normal life (which is the best) because they experience really happy moments, also difficult, but in the end everything is anyways good for them.
What I never think about is how jealous I am. And probably because I am not. 

Why I should be jealous?

In the Bible it is clearly written why people are who they are:

Matthew 13"That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the lake.Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat in it, while all the people stood on the shore. Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed.As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow.But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. Whoever has ears, let them hear.”

We are those seeds and that is okay. Instead of being jealous for others let's be happy. Let's be happy for a woman who can have children even if you can't. Be happy for a girl who found her love even if you don't. Be happy for someone who got better job offer even if you didn't. 

Don't forget that everyone has a story. Behind every smile. Everyone has a story. Someone will share it with you, others don't. And that is okay. Just be kind to people.
